How do I add users created in active directory to the SBS 2008 wizard

I've taken over management of a SBS 2008 from someone else.
When the previous administrator created users he did not use the SBS wizard and created them straight through active directory.
I've just created a SSL cert for the server and got everything online so they can start using RWW and OWA, I have the following problem:
I cannot give users access to computers to remote to as the users 'don't exist' when using the wizard.

I was wondering if it was possible to pull the users that are currently in active directory into the SBS wizard? If I can't do this I'm probably going to have to recreate all the users through the SBS wizard. Thankfully there are not too many.

On a side note, when logging on to OWA all the icons are missing, only displaying red X's. I haven't tried anything yet to resolve this.

Please let me know your thoughts.
